          What a fellowship, what a joy divine,
          Leaning on the everlasting arms;
          What a blessedness, what a peace is mine,
          Leaning on the everlasting arms.

            Chorus
            Leaning, leaning,
            Safe and secure from all alarms;
            Leaning, leaning,
            Leaning on the everlasting arms.

          O how sweet to walk in this pilgrim way,
          Leaning on the everlasting arms;
          O how bright the path grows from day to day,
          Leaning on the everlasting arms.

            Chorus
            Leaning, leaning,
            Safe and secure from all alarms;
            Leaning, leaning,
            Leaning on the everlasting arms.

          What have I to dread, what have I to fear,
          Leaning on the everlasting arms;
          I have blessed peace with my Lord so near,
          Leaning on the everlasting arms.

            Chorus
            Leaning, leaning,
            Safe and secure from all alarms;
            Leaning, leaning,
            Leaning on the everlasting arms.
